To celebrate the last month of Summer 2011, 7x7 and SVEDKA are teaming up to honor the city's bartenders and their skills of invention with an epic mixology competition! You can vote for your favorite featured bartender and their lascivious libation from August 1st through August 31st. You (yes, you!) will be entered to win a $50 bar tab at the winning watering hole. The winner of the San Francisco contest will be revealed on September 7th. Have fun trying all the great cocktails!

Here's our seventh featured bartender, JP Nguyen from Straits. He mixed up the I'm Happy Now using SVEDKA vodka. Visit JP at the bar at Straits, or try his recipe at home.


    1 1/2 oz SVEDKA Citron
    Squeeze half of fresh lemon
    1/2 oz of In-House Lemongrass Syrup

Bartender's notes: Shaken and Served in martini glass. Lightly topped with sparkling brut and garnish with lemon wheel.
